Wi-Fi networking specialist Meru Networks announces that their Wi-Fi access point has outperformed Cisco and Aruba APs in an extensive 802.11ac competitive testing exercise conducted by leading independent laboratory The Tolly Group.
Meru outperformed Cisco in seven of eight and Aruba in all eight multi-AP, multi-client test cases. The 802.11ac Meru AP832 Wi-Fi access point was tested and found superior to the directly comparable Cisco AP3702i and Aruba AP225 access points.
Meru’s access point scored high in the video streaming traffic test, where it was found 43 per cent faster than Cisco 3702i and 103 per cent faster than Aruba AP225. Meru also demonstrated far lower latency when streaming video – 56 per cent lower than Cisco and 61 per cent lower than Aruba.
According to Kevin Tolly, founder of The Tolly Group, the 802.11ac specification translates into great performance gains with all WLAN vendors seeking to aggressively capitalise on its full potential; the tests proved Meru’s 802.11ac AP832 access point had a clear performance advantage over its competitors in the Tolly labs.
Manish Rai, vice president of corporate marketing at Meru said their network-in-control-based MobileFLEX architecture provides Meru 802.11ac customers measurable and sustainable performance advantages over the competition.
